Mt. Rainier from Spray Park


"Mt. Rainier from Spray Park", 6 x 8 In, Oil on Museum Board
I painted this view of the northwest face of Mt. Rainier sitting on a big rock in Spray Park quite a few years ago. My husband, kids and I hiked to the vast and beautiful alpine meadows of this elevation from Mowich Lake. The painting is a sketch that includes so many memories that its not one I could part with.

  1. Hi Kathryn, good to see another of your amazing paintings. This is classic you - with energetic brush marks, perfect tones and an awe inspiring landscape which appears effortlessly painted.
    Do hope you are surviving what you have to do but please know that I miss your art.

  4. I think you must have nailed hue and value, because you really caught the light.
